Happy Birthday to moi!

 My birthday is a bit of a sticky subject around in, it always seems to come late and sometimes...well, more often than I would like to admit...I end up having a more of a planning role than I might like. I think Mr. CB would argue that I like to be part of planning everything but honestly...I do like to be treated once in awhile! ;)

So...just to be sure that I did get treated on my birthday, I finished a dress that I started last year!!! I was thrilled about his and wore it out to dinner on my birthday. It's Scientific Seamstress' Jamie. I made this pattern awhile back and really love it so yes, I actually do repeat patterns on occasion! The other picture shows me wearing my favourite Patterns for Pirates' Womens Raglan Shirt (well, one of them at least!)

In the end I was treated to a lovely necklace (I wore it with my dress), cake made by my Creative Crew and a day out in Niagara Falls. We went mini putting and had appetizers at The Rainforest Cafe! Mr. CB sometimes forgets that I like to do silly things...I am not a very good adult much of the time.

Didn't my crew do an awesome job on the cake??? I love it!

For All The Women I've Loved...

Creative Bug spent a week in classes all around Lincoln, West Lincoln and Grimsby for Mother's Day this year. We created necklaces that were all shapes and sizes, colours and labeled them with the most precious labels we could make.

I can't express how much I love going out into the community and spending time with children, educators and being in their classrooms. It's always a such a fun time for me (and I think the kids like it too!)

So Happy Mother's Day to all of you! I hope you enjoy some precious moments with the ones you love.

Carolina Sweetheart

This is the first Terra's Treasures Pattern that I have ever used. This dress is fully lined and a fairly simple sew. It is a shift style dress and it turned out fairly cute especially on the little ones. I found that in this case, I did not love the dress on the Creative Princess. I am sure I she will be wearing it this summer but it likely won't be a favourite.

I do love the fabrics that she chose and have a shirt out of them is so fresh!
